Thought of the Week

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.

Year 11 Leavers

I would like to take this opportunity to wish your child the best of luck for their final set of GCSE examinations. The Year 11 students have continued to work hard since returning after half term and I would like to praise those students who have retained a 100% attendance during this period. Students are able to benefit from focused lessons in subjects where examinations are not yet complete; or else they are able to benefit from supervised revision in lessons where examinations are complete. We also know that the vast majority of students are then able to complete 2-4 hours revision every evening.

Their official leaving date will be Friday 15th June and this will be marked by a formal assembly in the West Hall. Students will sit their Physics Paper 2 exam at 8.40am and then spend a short time with their form tutors who will be based over in the West building before attending the formal assembly at 11:00am.

The assembly will finish at 12:00pm and students will be free to go home. Please ensure that you have arranged suitable transport home for your son/daughter as there will be no more Year 11 lessons on that day. Students will then attend school only for their remaining exams in full uniform although students are welcome to revise in school in the library should they wish to do so during the last week of exams.

I would like to remind students that they are not allowed to get shirts signed if they are wearing them! If they wish to partake in shirt signing, they must carry a spare shirt with them. This includes the final Year 11 assembly.

Finally, I would like to remind you of the follow important dates for your diaries:

  • GCSE Biology Exam – Monday 11th June 2018

Yours faithfully
